	So it takes another 2:30 or so extra ? sounds like quite a lot.

	Perhaps one thing you could do - would be to help dung out the
instsetoo_native/util dmake file, and check the tooling - such that we
can build several install sets in parallel - that would help
particularly wrt. help-packs etc. where we have 100 or so installer
files to package concurrently - and we have ~7 CPUs sitting idle while
it happens. Any chance of that ? until we fix that, I'd prefer to have
this only on master really - debugging the packaging phase is rather a
nightmare as it is without an extra two hour wait each time to see if it
succeeded :-)

	Sure; it'd be great to validate the win.
